Camila P. Silveira

joined CBNI in April 2015 as PhD student funded by Science without Borders programme (Brazil). Her research is focused on characterising and mapping the nanoparticle protein corona.

Camila graduated from University of Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil, in 2012 with a B.Sc. in Chemistry. As part of her undergraduate research, she studied structural characteristics of Brazilian crude oil, mainly by NMR analysis under Prof. Ljubica Tasic supervisory.

In March 2015, Camila completed a M.Sc. degree in Physical-Chemistry from University of Campinas, Brazil, under Prof. Nelson Durán supervisory. Her research aimed to develop a drug depot system based on mesoporous silica nanoparticles for sustained delivery of anticancer agents. As part of her research, she focused on colloidal studies to investigate nanoparticles stability in presence of polymers and biomolecules, as well as the interactions between silica nanoparticles and proteins from the peritoneal fluid extracted from rats.
